Finally cooled off today and I got to appreciate some of what Maryland has to offer. The forest is beautiful with tall deciduous trees. Today was a windy day and leaves were falling and covering the trail.

Passed over interstate 70 on a very pretty bridge

Visited the original Washington Monument (which is right on the AT)

George Washington did a lot of stuff!!

At the top of the monument, I met Kirk. He was counting migrating raptors, which are headed south in large numbers now. He pointed out a broad winged hawk to me.

The Dahlgren Chapel (also right on the trail)

Maryland is great!!

On to Harper’s Ferry,
